question. i am a city employee. the city of detroit is under an emergency manager. right now the emergency manager is in federal court to file a ankruptcy for detroit. what he wants to do is to stop paying into our pension ystem. our pension system is protected by the michigan onstitution. what do you see happening to our pension if the federal bankruptcy allows them to stop paying into our pension? guest: that is a difficult legal question. there are a lot of people who have worked their entire lives believing their pension would be here for them. the issue is that federal law is supreme to state law. if federal law is properly invoked, then the michigan constitution does not have anything to say about it. it is not clear whether detroit properly file that petition. the michigan constitution says a municipality cannot do anything that would diminish the tensions of the employees. filing a bankruptcy petition can be interpreted as something that would diminish their ensions. so the argument that's very plausible is the petition itself is no good. the federal law was never invoked. because

. now i want to say i think it's a real honor to be invited to speak at the detroit economic club at how many people can say my younger brother also spoke at the detroit economic forum and his brother john zogby who i mentioned earlier was here in the fall i believe in september and spoke before us. so we are very happy to have both of you here. they have been very successful with presidential elections but what i think is particularly significant here is that they have been very successful in conducting polls and measuring opinion in countries outside of the united states which has what he is going to talk about today. they correctly called in 2000 when the israeli election of ariel sharon, the 2000 mexican election of felipe a. calderon in 2006 and they have conducted numerous polls in arab countries. so i suppose -- something like predictions are very difficult especially those involving the future. they seem to have a good knack at predicting the future and i know it's through very hard work that they can get there. in 1993 vice president al gore appointed dr. zogby to lead elder

. >> it's 5:13. a month after filing for bankruptcy, detroit is doing everything it can to make up its $18 billion in liabilities. that means everything is on the table when it comes to selling. we already told you the city is talking to christie's auction house about selling off some of its art. now we're learning the zoo could be up for grabs as well. the 125-acre natural habitat currently holds more than 3,300 animals. other items possibly for sale include the city's water and sewage department and a park in the detroit river which contains the city's aquarium. >>> you probably didn't see it on the calendar. but today is hyper loop day. that's right, modern day thomas edison elon musk revealing plans for a train racing from here to l.a. >> plans only. musk says he's not going to build it. rather release sketches sand blueprints, allow anyone to build upon it. that's called open source, no copy right. this san! from our system station in los angeles. one concept of what this thing might be, we do know it's some sort of compressed air tube, not unlike the tubes that banks use at drive

unfortunate where for almost 300 americans died over the city of detroit. only then was that a political will to say we now need to use 21st century technology which we have against the terrorists. so if you look at it right now in a world where they only have to be right 1% of the time we have to be right 100% of the time on defense we should use one of our few at images which is technology and the vast majority of the explosive detection systems in place today aren't capable of detecting either this type of clothing soaked in liquid explosives nor are they capable of detecting even say the surgically implanted bombs or something as basic as the underwear bomber. most are designed to do -- magnetometers detect metal. that is not the explosive itself. usually the only medal medal involved as the detonator so if you are able to designed explosives with no metal detector, you effectively have made that system. we are living in the stone age's on most of the magnetometer technology we are using. our one advantage which is bring for this modern advanced imaging technology to allow us to leve

: i have a question. i work for a labor union out of detroit. the way i work, as long as you are working, your insurance was being paid for, but you have to have so many hours. say you are off for a month, because that is the way construction works, you lose that and you do not it your insurance until thou was built back up. you could go for two to be oh or three months. how is it going to work? guest: one thing we have not talked about the law is the employer mandate. i think that is what you are referring to in the call. all employers with more than 50 full-time workers are going to be required to provide healthcare coverage. right now about 96% of those employers already provide coverage. this law makes sure they all do. but this provision that was supposed to take effect this january for the 14, has been pushed back one year to 2015 because the obama administration was late getting some of the rules out and they decided to make it easier on employers and push it back. the question is, what is full- time? under the rules so far they made it 30 hours full-time. at is the number
